Thursday, December 29, 2022

One night, a monkey was playing by the well. He looked into the well and found a moon in it. The little monkey cried, "No, the moon has fallen into the well."

The monkey heard this and ran over to look at it. He also called out: "No, the moon has fallen into the well." The old monkey heard this and ran over to look at it. He also called out: "No, the moon has fallen into the well. We have to find a way to get it."

The monkeys climbed up the tree near the well, and the old monkey hung upside down on the tree, holding the monkey's feet. The monkey also hung upside down, holding the other monkey's foot. The monkeys hung one by one until they reached the well. The little monkey hung at the bottom. The little monkey reached out to catch the moon. As soon as his hand touched the water, the moon broke into pieces. The little monkey said, "Oh, no, the moon was broken by me."

The family complained about the little monkey. After a while, the water was calm again. Another round and bright moon appeared in the well. The little monkey reached out to catch the moon, but as soon as he touched the moon, it broke into pieces. The monkeys failed several times. The family shouted, "I'm tired of catching the moon, but I still can't catch it. I can't catch it."

At this time, the old monkey looked up and saw that the moon was still in the sky. He panted and said, "No need to fish, no need to fish, the moon is hanging in the sky, and the moon in the well is its reflection."

The monkeys looked up at the moon and smiled.

The story tells us that the money has not get the moon in the well, because it is the shadow of the moon in the sky.
